GEORGE WI WOOD WARD
, Constitutional Union 'and Liberty According
to American Law."
From the Easton Argus.
The convention which nominated the Hon.
George W_ - Woodward as the Democratic eats
ilidate for Governor will be gratefully remem
bered for years to come. his life, character,
great abilities, statesmanship and public ser
vices are such as to command the respect of all
parties. The qualities of his head are only
equaged, if not eclipsed, by those of his heart.
Although a man of self reliance and iron will,
(essential ingredients in the composition of ,a
leading mind,) his pretensions never exceeded
his real merits. He has never sought security
from censure by prudent silence or time-ser
ving neutrality. We have placed his name at
the head of our paper, together with a senti
ment uttered by him in a speech delivered on
the 10th of December, 1860, in Independence
Square, Philadelphia, when our political trou
bles were about to begin. Although a Judge
of the Supreme Court he went before the peo
ple to plead for the preservation of a Union,
which had been consummated by the blood of
heroes and the wisdom of sages. Had men
of his principlea been in office, or had his
Advice been taken, we would not now be sur
rounded by our present unfortunate difficul
George W. Woodward is about 54 years of
age, and is a native of Wayne, one of the coun
ties of the old Tenth' Legion. His parents,
though highly respectable had not the means
of giving him anything more than a good edu
cation. When he became of age and was about
to be admitted to the bar, he removed to Lu
zerne County_ Being honest and industrious,
sagacious' end patient, he soon rose to eminence
at a bar where such men as Garrick Mallery,
Judge Conygnham and lawyers Of that stamp
presided. He soon acquired au extensive
practice in the counties of Luzerne, Wayne,
Pike and Susquehanna.
In 1836 he was elected as the Democratic
Senatorial 'Delegate from the counties of Lu
acres, Monroe and 'Pike to the Constitutional
Convention which made our present State Con
stitution, and although one of the youngest
men in the Convention, so great was his ability
that he at once took rank with such men as
John Sergeant, Walter Forward, J. C. Biddle,
James M. Porter and Charles J. Ingersoll.—
Having aided in making the Constitution he
knows how to construe and administer it. In
deed, there is no better constitutional lawyer
in the United States than Judge Woodward.
In 1841 Gov. hiller' appointed him to the
Common Pleas bench, in the district composed
of the counties of Huntingdon, Centre, Clear
field and one or two others.
In 1845, the friends of the then patriotic
Governor Shunk nominated him as the Demo
cratic candidate for United States Senator, to
supply the plane made vacant by the resigna
tion of James Buchanan, who had just been
appointed Secretary of State by President
Polk, but his election was defeated by General
Cameron seducing four or five pretended Dem
ocrats, who united with the entire body of the
opposition and elected Cameron.
In 1846 President James K. Polk nominated
him a Judge of the Supreme Court of the
United stutos to fill the place made vacant by
the death of Judge Baldwin, but Cameron
being in the Senate procured his rejection, in
opposition to the great bony of the Democrats
in that body.
In 1852 Gov. Bigler appointed him to the
Supreme nench of Pennsylvania, to fill a va
cancy made by the death. of Judge Coulter,
and in the same or the next year he was nomi
nated and elected by the Democratic party
of the State to the same place for the consti
tutional term of fifteen years, so that bathes
about four years . to serve, and in December
next would have been the Chief Justice of the
When 'first called upon and urged to accept
a nomination for Governor, be declined, on
the ground that he preferred to be the Chief
Justice of the State for four years, which was
in the line of his profession, but after much so.
licitation he consented for the reason that in
the present abnormal condition of public af
fairs thepeople bad a right to demand tits ser
vices of any petson they thought could best
serve them. Ms nomination was the result,
and his election is certain, if be lives, by at
least from 30,000 to 50;000 majority.
The nomination of a man like Woodward
seems like going back to the purer and better
days of the Republic, and furnishes a well
grounded hope that public and constitutional
liberty may yet be preserved in this country.
Re was the intimate associate and friend of
great men and patriots like James K. Polk and
Frauds ft, Bhunk. The one thought him fit
to be a United States Senator and the other
thought him fit to be a Judge of the Supreme
Court of the United States, seventeen years
This country and government, have three
enemies—buncombe, one-ideaism and corrup
tion. They have nearly if not.quite disrupted
the Federal government, and: the last named,
if not arrested, will yet destroy the State go
vernments, for no free government can stand
Corruption, We all know the progress it has
made during the bitst few years. If not ar
rested now, it never can be, for it will become
the rule instead of the exception. The fear
lessness of Judge Woodward in the discharge
of duty eminently qualify him to arrest this
great evil. No person would think of approach
ing a man of his noble appearance , dignified
bearing and positive character, with an 1.111
clean proposition. He is too honest to be pur
dieted, toe fit% tO be bullied and too watchful
to be surprised. With him at the head of the
government at. Harrisburg the lobby-gang will
be broken up and cleaned out.
The peculiar manner of his nomination will
enable him to act independently and for the
publio good. He has not had a large number
of partiearte about him for a number of years,
urging and working for hiS nomination, to
whom he would feel under personal obligations.
Such a large number of men cannot all have
offices, and three-fourths go away feeling the
sting of ingratitude, and forthwith begin to
pull down an administration without regard
to its merits, and one man acting from feelings
of revenge is more effective than a dozen act
ing from motives of gratitude.
It may be said that we will lose his services
on the Supreme 'Bench. This is true, but he
can appoint his own successor, and we Will
have him in a much more important and re
sponsible position, where he may yet b.e called
upon to save the civil liberties and property of
the people of this 'great State. Thank, God,
the machinery of government, (the, primary
object of which is to give protection to persons
and property 4 is perfect within the States.
We have in PeunsYlvania a Legislature, a Gov
ernor, a Judiciary and a Militia system, with
a population of nearly 3,000,000. ON state
borders on the northern lakes, upon the west
ern waters navigable to the gulf, and has access
PRICE TWO CENTS.
to the ocean by the Delaware through the port
of Philadelphia ; and we have a monopoly of
the iron and coal trade, which will enable us
to command trade upon proper terms with
our sister States, provided we have a states
man like Judge Woodward at the head of 41f
fairs, who will admiaiieter the cleverneeont not
upon the abstract dogmas of fanaticism, nor
yet upon little offices, but upon great, wise and
beneficent principles. Inferior men may get a
nation into a war—it takes wise men and

It may be said that he ought to resign and
"stump the State." We do not think so. We
have always thought that it lessened the dig

date, because it looks like personally solicit

ward's ability to do it. It is not necessary,
because he has an established reputation for
ability, sound principles and statesmanship,
and is personally known to more people in this
State than any other man in it. People look
to the press for correct - information respecting
men and measures. As a general thing parti

THE BATTLE OF TBE IRON-CLADS
NEWPORT NEWS, June 22.—Hon. Gideon
'Welles, Secretary of the Nary:—Your dispatch
has just been received. Admiral Dupont sent
the Weehawken, Capt. Rodgers, and Nahant,
down to Warsaw Sound, to look out for the
Atlanta. On June 17th, at 6a. n 3,, the Atitntn
(same down, accompanied by two gunboats.—
The engagetnent was exclusively between the
Weehawken and Atlanta. The latter mounted
four of the Brooke rifles, two of seven (one
bow and stern,) pivots, and two of six inches,
one on each side. She could fight two of the
former, and one of the latter on a side. Rod
gers engaged at close quarters. , The first 15-
inch shot, fired by himself, took off the top of
the Atlanta's pilot-house, and wounded two of
her three pilots. Another 15-inch shot @truck
half way up the roof, which was iron-plated
four inches thick: killing one and wounding
seventeen men. Eleven shots were fired in all
—five by the Weehawken and six by the At
lanta. The Atlanta ran agronnd and surren-.
dered. The fight was short and the victory .
signal. The Weehawken sustained no injury
Of 4ny sort_ The Atlanta ste era well, and made
six knots against a bead sea going to Port
Royal. She was completly provided with in
struments and stores for a regular cruise.—
She had a ram, a saw, and a torpedo on her
bow. Ex-Lieut. W. H. Webb commanded her.
Her complement was one hundred. and forty
five souls. Her wounded men were left at Port
Royal. The Atlanta is said to have come down
confident of capturing the monitors aasily, and
her consorts, filled with spectators, were pre
pared to towthem to Savannah. She will soon
be ready for service under the flag of the
Union. S. P. LEE, A. Rear Admiral.
WASHINGTON, June 23.—Capt. John Rodgers
circumstantially relates the proceedings at
tending the capture of the Atlanta. Oa ex
amination it was found that the enemy bad
been struck four times. First on the inclined
side by a 15-inch cored shot, which, although
fired at. an angle of,fifty degrees with her keel,
broke through the armor and wood backing,
strewing her deek with splinters, proutratine:
about forty men by the concussion, and wound.'
ing several by broken" pieces of armor and
splinters. One man has since died. The sec
ond shot, 11-inch solid, struck the edge of the
overhung knackle, doing no damage excdpt
breaking a plate or two. The third shot, a
15-inch cored, struck the top of the pilot-house,
knocking it off, wound;ng two pilots, and stun
ning th e rasa at the 10001_ The fourth shot,
supposed'to be 11-inch, struck a port stopper
in the centre; breaking it in two and' Asti ering
it very much, driving many *fragments in
through the port. There were on board at the
time of capture, as per muster roll, 21 officers ,
and 124 men, including 28 marines.
The captured Confederate officers told Capt.
Rodgers they: thought they should find the
speed of the Atlanta reach ten knots. They
believed her to be the strongest iron-clad in
the Confederacy, and confidently anticipated
taking both the Nahant and Weehawken. The
behavior of the officers and crew were admira
ble. The following, among her officers, were
late of the United States Navy : Wm. A. Webb,
commander; J. Alexander, Ist Lieutenant;
Alfonso Barbot, 23 Lieutenant; A. L. Free
man, surgeon, and G. H. Johnson, Ist assist
Admiral Dupont, in his dispatch, says: The
Fingal, in a dense fog, ran the blockade at
Savannah a few days slier the Part Royal forts
were taker, lb November, 1861. She has been
closely watched ever since, and, as in the case of
the Nashville, the long and ceaseless vigilance
of his officers has been rewarded. The Atlanta
is. now in Port Royal, under the American flag,
having unaided steamed into the harbor from
Nassau. Commander Downes, with his usual
gallantry, the Admiral says, moved with the
Nahant as rapidly as possible toward the
Qu ezon reserving his fire until he could get
into close action, but lost the opportunity from
the brief nature of the engagement of using
Admiral Dupont says he has been told that
the Confederate government considered the At
lanta as the most efficient of their gunboats.

ous in the suburbs of the capital of Japan, of
which the romantic town of Dang-o- Zaka is
one. The most curious-objects in one of these
gardens were imitation ladies, made up out of
the flowers of the chrysanthemum. Thousands
of flowers are used for this purpose, and as
these artificial beauties smiled upon the visit
ere out of the little alcoreS or Bummer houses,
the effect was something rather startling.
•Mr. Fortune visited garden after garden, each
of which was crowded with plants, some cul
tivated in pots, and others in the open ground,
many of which were entirely new to Europe,
and of great interest and value. A great
number of new shrubs and trees, Many Of
them . probably well suited to the English cli
mate, was here purchased by our traveler.
In exploring the country and gardens about
Su- mae-yah and Ogee, in the same direction as
Dang.m r lika, but somewhat lartnar from Yedo )
Mr. fortune found "park-like scenery, trees
and gardens, neatly clipped hedges succeeding
each other, until he arrived at the village of
Su-mae-yal." The whole country here, he
says. is covered with nursery gardens. “One
straight road, more than a mile in length, is
lined with them," and he remarks he bad never
seen in any part of the world such a large
number of plants cultivated for sale. Each
nursery covers three or four acres of land, is
nicely kept,. and contains thousands of plants,
both in pots and in the open gicathd. As these
nurseries are generally much alike in their
features, a description of one will give a good
idea of the others.
"On entering the gateway there is a pretty
little winding path leading up to the proprie
tor's house, which Is usually situated near the
centre of the garden. On each side of this
walk are planted specimens of the hardy or
namental trees and shrubs of the country,
many of which aro dtParfed or cupped into
round table forms. The beautiful little yew
(taxus caepidata,) occupies a prominent place
among the dwarf shrubs. Then there are the
different species of pines, ilajas, retinosporas,
and the beautiful Sciadopitys verticellata, all
duly, represented. Plants cultivated in pots
are usually kept near the house of the nursery
man, or cuelbeed with a fence of bamboo work.
These are oultivated and arranged much in the
same way as we do such things at home. The
Japanese gardener has not yet brought glass"
houses to his aid for the protection and culti
vation of tender plants. Instead of this,
houses, sheds and rooms are filled with shelves,
into which all the tender things are huddled
together for shelter during the cold months of
winter." Here Mr. Fortune found some South
American plants such as cacti, aloes,
/ w hi c h hate fcutid their way here, although
as yet unknown in China ; a fact which show/
the enterprise of the Japanese in a favorable
light" over Opt of their neighbors.
In Japan and Chins, dwarf plants are greatly
esteemed ; and the art of dwarfing has been
brought to a high state of perfection. Presi
dent Meylan, in 1826, saw a box which he de
scribes as only one inch roaro by three inches
high, in which were actually growing and
thriving # bamboo, a fir, and a plum tree, the
latter b'eing in full blosiom. The price of this
portable grove was 12C0 Dutch gulden, or
about £loo.—Robert Fortune.

cavalry force of 400 were out scouting and
